He didn't want it That Way

Remember Nick Carter? Little Nicky C from the Backstreet Boys? The one with the butter-wouldn't-melt blue eyes and soft golden hair? Yeah, well he's been arrested after an alleged bar scuffle.

According to TMZ, the singer was booked by police in Florida on Wednesday night after apparently getting into some kind of minor brawl inside the Hog's Breath Saloon in Key West.

ACTUAL mug shot!

He's since been charged with misdemeanour battery, which under Florida law doesn't actually mean he'll have had to hurt someone or even touch them with his own body to have been arrested.

"A battery can occur from something minor, such as grabbing another person's arm; or a battery could also occur by throwing something that strikes another person," says the relevant bit of legalese – don't ever say heat doesn't try to help you learn a new thing every day.

Anyway, the documents Nick signed at his arrest actually give his occupation as "none", which is a bit weird, isn't it? Because we've been labouring under the impression that the Backstreet Boys were still going for a veerrryy long time.

**UPDATE: **Don't worry, it now says "singer" under his occupation. THANK THE LORD.
